About Jane Gardner

Jane Gardner has been in the property industry since the 1980s, starting her career as a sales negotiator for Connells Estate Agents and since then she has worked within independent, franchised and corporate estate agencies and has started up numerous agency businesses which have gone on to be incredibly successful.  In 2002 she started Sewell & Gardner in Hertfordshire, building to a 3 branch agency and winning the Sunday Times lettings agency of the year trophy in 2013, selling to Countrywide plc at the end of 2014.

Jane is a writer and examiner for ARLA PROPERTYMARK, sitting on their exam board for the lettings technical awards at L3 & L4, and she was the first in the UK to pass the Level 4 Certificate in Residential Lettings & Property Management. Jane is on the board of Agents Giving (the Estate Agency charity) and has spoken about her career at the Sunday Times Lettings Live conference in 2015.

1 Hour Mentoring Sessions via Zoom

If you would like to use Jane’s experience to help with any aspect of your business, you can do this via one-off Zoom sessions.  Please note, however, that mentoring in this way is more effective if you can commit to a weekly or bi-weekly session for a minimum of 3 months.  Before booking in a mentoring session, please book a Zoom initial consultation meeting – which is FREE – so that we can discuss your needs and make a plan!




During her years in estate agency Jane has worked alongside many influential people and now she brings her expertise to estate and letting agencies who are keen to be the best.  Jane will help mentor the senior staff or directors, working on growth strategy, planning systems and processes to bring the agency to forefront of the agency industry in the UK.  Jane helps to highlight areas of improvement, implement change in order to grow or work towards an exit strategy, ensuring that all compliance is covered.

All new clients will receive a ZOOM consultation appointment in order to discuss their particular requirements and for us to get a feel for the business, whilst ascertaining if we do indeed have the tools to assist you.

Our particular approach is based heavily upon the need for exceptional customer service and commitment from senior management, fully engaging all members of staff from part-time negotiators, accounts and administrative teams, through to property managers, lettings and sales consultants, and branch or regional managers. Without your full commitment to the ideas and plans we make, I’m afraid your investment with us will be ineffectual.


After your initial consultation, you will receive a brief overview of our meeting and the main points raised, along with our structure for moving forward and our hourly, daily or monthly rates as a guideline for further discussion.  Jane’s time is limited and she is only available to work with one client at a time for consultancy, there may be a waiting list.

  • Jane’s daily price – in person £1,075 (10am to 5pm)
  • Half-day rate – in person £550 (4 hours)
  • Hourly zoom rate – £125+VAT – Book Here
